Spaced Out - Custom Action Figure Contest!
View Contest Entries
Space...the final frontier. This is the basis for the newest contest. Anything from aliens and astronauts all the way to space pirates and intergalactic police are fair game. The goal is to create a custom of a cosmic character. For the purpose of this contest cosmic characters are those closely associate with space, space travel and other worlds. There are the usual suspects like Star Wars, Star Trek, Star Craft, Bablyon 5, and the rest; but there are also things like Firefly, Cowboy Bebop, Dead Space, and Warhammer 40k to consider.
-All entries must be of characters closely associated with space in some way. Being able to survive in space or having a small stint in space or off world is not enough to be included in this contest. For example Havok was a member of the Star Jammers for a little while, but he is not a viable entry because the vast majority of his time is spent on Earth.
-Characters not usually associated with space can be included as entries if they are depicted in specialize space gear.
-As always there are no size restrictions for this contest. You may use any sort of materials, parts, tools or techniques that you wish. Whatever gets the job done..
What are the rules of the contest?
It's hard to choose just one custom to vote on when there are tons of great entries, so Figure Realm has a unique voting system where you can vote on ALL the customs! When you click on an entry to view, there's a bar with buttons on it that lets you give the custom anywhere from 1 to 5 Stars. 1 Star means you think they could have done a better job on the custom while 5 Stars means you think they did a perfect job. The votes for each entry are added up when voting is closed and averaged-out to determine the winners. Also, don't abuse the system. Don't give your own custom 5 Stars and then give everyone else 1 Star to boost your rating. Remember, the votes are monitored.
Some points you might consider when casting your vote: Is the figure well-made? Is the paint smooth or crusty? Are there noticeable fingerprints on the sculpted parts? Is it an original custom? Is it accurate to the source-material (comics, photos, description in a book)? Are the pictures clear enough to see the details? Did the creator take the time to include a back-story or recipe? Is the custom so unbelievably awesome that you'd trade your girlfriend for it?
Craftsmanship and creativity are major factors to consider, but ultimately your vote should depend on how much you like the custom, and how well you feel it fits the contest theme.
